Country gets its first tiger repository

The Wildlife Institute of India (WII) will house the India’s first repository on tigers, under its new Tiger Cell. The new Tiger Cell will assist in population assessment of tigers, law enforcement, wildlife forensics, infrastructural development and mitigation, smart patrolling and advisory role in policy formulation. It will be funded by the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), a statutory body under the Environment Ministry. 

Wildlife Institute of India (WII) is an autonomous institution under the Union Ministry of Environment Forest and Climate Change. It is based in Chandrabani, Dehradun and has about 23,000 images of tigers. It conducts specialised research in areas of study like Endangered Species, Biodiversity, Wildlife Management, Wildlife Policy, Wildlife Forensics, Habitat Ecology, Spatial Modelling, Ecodevelopment, and Climate Change.

So let’s discuss some questions related to this post:
1. The India’s first repository on tigers is funded by which department?
2. Where is the headquarter of Wildlife Institute of India (WII)?
